Have you noticed that some supermarkets across Europe currently have partially empty fruit and vegetable shelves?
There are three reasons for that.
First: In Almeria, southern Spain (that’s where most of the European goods come from), it was first too warm, then too cold, resulting in massive crop failures.
Second: Some major greenhouses in Holland experienced a complete crop failure because of the high energy prices (heating them would not have been worthwhile).
Third: That leaves North Africa, but there were problems there too. Flooding, cold temperatures and cancelled ferries have caused significant supply problems in Moroccan fruits and veggies.
The article about Holland’s greenhouses states:
‘Nowhere in the world are the yields of many types of vegetables as high as here. Wouter van den Bosch harvests 35 to 40 kilograms of green peppers per square meter. That’s around five times as much as farmers in the Almeria region can produce, the center of Spanish vegetable cultivation.
‘But the Dutch greenhouse miracle has a weak point. It eats enormous amounts of energy. Above all gas. Almost nine percent of all national natural gas consumption goes into greenhouses.‘

Further down in the article they say that a neighboring company switched to geothermal energy a while ago for a total cost of around 10 million euros. Of course the other farmers initially mocked that business decision. Meanwhile, this company has evolved from energy consumer to energy producer and sell their excess heat to the other greenhouse farming operations around.
As they state: ‘We turned from energy consumers to energy producers when we have more heat than we need…‘
